    Is this real?!? Those specs are flat out amazing. Are those wireless controller ports? Links?

    well being that IBM doesn't make the PowerPC G4 and it can only go up to 1.42Ghz in a huge tower, that would be my first red flag.

    it's good to dream though.

    That does look cool.

    And I could see Nintendo making wireless controllers a standard for the next console if they can fix the rumble issue. Maybe they could have it so that you can connect the controllers to the console with a cord and recharge it while playing, or detatch it and play off of a battery?

    I commend whoever drew that up. It looks pretty damn cool.

    BTW, Nintendonexus.com is available. [​IMG] Go ahead and pick that bad boy up.

    256MB 1T-SRAM......I wonder if they will continue to use embedded memory in their next console, or move to something more cost effective.

    Interesting. My only request.... make it front loading. Top loading consoles are a pain to integrate into a home theater.

    it also has "BLUE-ray" which is totally incorrect [​IMG]

    if they are trying to refer to Sony's HD DVD technology, it is called 'BLU-Ray' with no 'E'

    Blu-Ray discs are also loaded differently, so the design for the Nexus wouldn't match up with the Blu-Ray design.

    If only it were real.... [​IMG]

    I think Nintendo should seriously look at that before they make their next system. Quite an interesting design, there. [​IMG]

    I wonder how many hours of 3D modeler time it took the person that made that. [​IMG]

    Having the GBA port on there is brilliant-something that Nintendo should have done with the Cube. What about making the memory card ports the same connection as a GBA cart, so that you can run GBA games through the same port that a memory card would use. Conversely, you could use a memory card in a GBA for furhter GBA integration and connectivity.

    If they made mini-Blu-Ray discs, then they could be slot loading.

    And about the GBA port...

    Imagine saving data from a game right onto the cartridge version of a game (like Metroid) and then being able access hidden features. It would eliminate the need for a cable between a GBA and the console like you currently need.

    But aren't we hoping that the next Game Boy will use discs?

    Yeah, Gekko II and Flipper II seem to lack creativity, and will probably not be their names. SRAM is too expensive to have 128MB of it. I really hope that the PS3 and XBOX2 have at least 128MB of unified RAM as well as 32MB dedicated to rendering 1080i games so that developers no longer have a choice of whether to support HDTV with their games.

    It looks good, but I don't know if it is real. Did you notice that it is backwards-compatible with Gamecube?

    How do they take the picture so that there are Zero reflections on the console body..? That is some pretty flat, non reflective plastic [​IMG]

    Totally fake.

    What's with the 4 little volume dials on the front?

    It's a combo of 3DsMax, Maya, or Lightwave most likely, with some Photoshop work to polish it off.

    Pretty nice render.

    Maybe he/she will get a job out of it.
